BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

We're participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count this weekend.

Sas and I are helping Rama identify and count the birdies.

There's a Black-capped Chickadee.
So cute and perky.

Oh, Look! I see 3 Goldfinches.
They love the thistle!

Wake me when you're finished, please.

Oh such beautiful and helpful pups! You're supposed to be counting birds, not sheep! Keep those eyes open!

Sharon said...

We have been watching the birds too - too many to count, they keep flying off and coming back. Yesterday they were so busy! What was your count?

Aksharaa said...

Oh My Dog!We really admire your resilience and patience. You actually sat there and counted birds?
WoW! we aren't sure we could have resisted chasing them!
Love the pictures...:)

Great job counting. We saw a few robins and one big glen eagle - but we had our eyes set on rabbits instead.

The Herd only helps to reduce the count and don't think that would be considered helpful.

What a fun thingy to do.. I can't count high enough to do the birds in my yard though. Today I saw 3 robins and a BUNCH of Redwinged Blackbirds. No finches today.. butt some yesterday.

You keep countin... It will be interesting to know what all you see.

What wonderful pictures, good job at counting all the birds!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Sassy and Zack you are the best little helpers a Mom could ever have. Mom says she wishes she was sitting right there with you all counting birds.

It is windy but nice here. Mom and Dad have been in the yard and I've been snoopervising from the perch.
Hugs Madi

Well, not the most thrilling activity, but something to pass the time for sure. What's with Buddy's photo in the header? Look at that labratongue.


Benny and Lily said...

Great job. How many did you spot?

Just being able to sit outside on the deck makes it a great day! Much too cold to be outside up here in NY. :(

Woofs and Licks,

Wonderful job! How many did you count? Lots of love, Holly and mom

Shelley said...

Such concentration on those beautiful furry faces! Scout and Marvin were helping me count birds too for the GBBC - have fun!!

Kari in WeHo said...

That weather is great!


Susan said...

So precious! How did Buddy miss out on all the excitement? Love the spring look of the blog!

Priscilla said...

I didn't know anything about bird counting. I chase them, does it count too?

Gloria said...

Don't you ever run after any of those birds? I would. Mom won't let me run free outside, cause we has really big birds that might carry me off! Licky kisses, Billy

Sassy and Zack, you are the cutest canine bird counters I've seen!
So alert and you even know the kinds of birds on your deck!

I love to chase the doves, but Mom says, "no chasing the birds!"

Thanks for the good words, I'm doing better! Hopefully in a week the vet will take off this darn cone and stitches! I hope, I hope, I hope!
Licks and sniffs, Raider

Our bird population has increased a bunch in the last couple of weeks!! It would be a full time job counting them!! Good luck!!
I am so happy to have better weather
finally!!!! I know we will have some more cold but I am happy not to be freezing now and the animals are happy to be outside!!!
How is Buddy??
Hugs to you and the Pups Girlfriend,
Bambi & Fern

I counted 1 big yellow lab at the Union County TN Humane Society this weekend... does that count?

Our birds are slowly coming back....it's nesting time and I love that! Robins, mockingbirds, cardinals, and oh yes, a chicken. She survived below zero temps and I am amazed at her hardiness. Now, if she can just avoid being blown away by a tornado this spring. Thanks for your sweet thoughts while The Hub was in the hospital. He is on the mend, and everyday I see his personality come back to life.

Kit with every animal I have I learn to do better for the next one. Bambi got really lucky or maybe it is all the way it should be!
Love your visits......
xxooxx, Fern

Chickadees!!! I miss them from when I lived up north! You pups are great at bird counting. Foster Phoebe counts birds by woofeling like crazy so we would never get past 1 in our back yard!
